The ideal exposure for this agave is filtered shade, especially in the low desert, although it can be grown in full sun. Avoid placing octopus agave in areas that receive hot, reflected sun, where it can struggle and turn yellow from the intense heat.Like other agave species, it has a leaf that channels water toward the base of the plant and root zone. While drought tolerant, octopus agave looks best when watered deeply every 10 to 14 days in summer and once a month in winter.Variegated forms of octopus agave are also available, such as A. vilmoriniana ‘Variegata’ and ‘Stained Glass’, shown here, which have yellow coloring on the edges of the leaves.
